clinton in. he should be the mediator in this latest conflict. would israel or gaza welcome bill clinton? >> reporter: i've been saying that, actually, myself. i wrote a blog post on our "situation room" blog post months ago saying after george mitchell, the obama administration's special envoy for israeli/palestinian peace negotiations, after he ended his tour without any success at all. that's been more than a year ago. maybe a year and a half or so ago. i said they need -- really, they need someone who's got clout with the israelis. who's got clout with the palestinians in the arab world. i thought bill clinton, especially with his wife leaving as secretary of state, maybe that would be a good assignment for him. he's taken on other assignments like haiti relief, for example, the tsunami. i know he got -- the final months of his presidency to a deal between the israelis and the palestinians. i think mccain may be on to something. i don't know if bill clinton would want to do it. i've asked him that question in an interview i did with him a few months back. he didn't say no. he didn't
about for a while that president obama named former president bill clinton as a special middle east envoy given his history with the israelis and palestinians. tony blair thought that was a pretty good idea if the president of the united states was inclined to do it, but let's see if anything gets off the ground as far as a cease-fire is concerned to begin with. natalie. >> it will be interesting to see if bill clinton got in the mix there. does israel fear recriminations, wolf, of a ground assault which it saw in 2008? >> israel is very worried about what would happen not only to its own troops, but what would happen in gaza because you go into a densely populated yak liar gaza and armored personnel carriers. it's going to be ugly. there's no doubt about that. they want to avoid it, at the same time they want to end these rockets and missiles coming into israel. it's not an easy decision for them, and i suspect there's a limited amount of time before the prime minister makes up his mind together with his cabinet what he is going to do. >> all right. wolf blitzer for us live many je
the border there between israel and gaza. so what does he want? he wants former president bill clinton to get involved. >> try to find someone even as high-ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together, as an arms broker. >> during his presidency bill clinton held negotiations at camp david between israel and the palestinian authority. >> other top stories this morning. the u.s. is with you. president obama promising american support for myanmar as the once repressive regime travels the road to democracy. he is the first sitting u.s. president to travel there. he's also the first to go to cambodia, arriving there just this morning. that is the last stop on his very quick tour of southeast asia. >> and 2016. i know i know. it might be a long way away. but a certain senator from florida sure looked like a presidential candidate during this visit to iowa. marco rubio appearing saturday night at a fund-raiser for iowa governor terry
bill clinton help stop the fighting here in the middle east? i'll talk about that and more with the former british prime minister, the middle east special peace enjoy, tony blair. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer in jerusalem. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're coming to you live from jerusalem where there seems to be at least for now no end in sight to the fighting that's been going on between the israelis and hamas in gaza. today, sirens warned of more rockets from gaza coming into israel, sending terrified residents fleeing for safety, seeking refuge in bomb shelters. israeli officials say three people have died, 68 people have been wounded here in israel as the result of hamas rockets and missiles and the fear is just as deep in gaza as israeli missiles struck for a sixth consecutive day. among the latest targets, office buildings used by some media outlets in gaza, according to palestinian sources. at least two people died in that attack, pushing the palestinian death toll righ now to at least 104 with mo
were working with bill clinton he moved the democrats towards the center in a key way through the dlc, became a new democrat as they called him. >> well, speaking of gifts, if mitt romney wanted to give a gift to the republican party, he'd spend the next four years in the mormon missionary in nepal. man's just got to shut up. but that's his business. look, we lost five out of six elections and then governor clinton decided for a change. mike tyson said everybody got a plan. they got hit in the mouth. their plan is end immigration, anti-gay stuff that's all going out the window if they've got any sense. we're going to see if somebody can bring them along that and they have to win the iowa caucuses or do well in them and take that message to south carolina. remember, their base is still sort of agitated out there. somebody's going to have to deal with that. the truth of the matter is they got hit in the mouth and going to have a new plan. >> what about that, ari? do you think it's time for a new republican, new republican orientation? >> no. but i do think there are some changes that ha
, bill clinton won big. you know who else won big? me. when i went back in january of 1997, was i willing to work any more after bill clinton won the election than before? no. a lot of republicans that won an election in the house as well. i just say that to say the president can go ahead -- and to follow up on david, he could do brinkmanship if he wants. a lot of these guys have spent the last couple years in the house standing up to the president going after him aggressively. he got re-elected. >> and the government's organized the same way. >> yes. if the president wants to engage in brinksmanship, he can. >> the message they took from their own re-election in their district was go back to washington and fight the president. don't cooperate with what he wants to do. >> right. >> all right, josh -- >> that's what i'm saying, brinksmanship seems to be short-sighted right now. i think instead of flying all across the country and spending taxpayer dollars on air force one and your security detail, could you just try inviting people over to the white house? >> he's doing that, too. >> and w
consolidation, also the way bill clinton did, was heavy on the spending cuts, lighter on the tax increases. this is an eu style tax hike-heavy austerity and we may get the same results. >> you are not rising above, jimmy. i've got to tell you. >> i'm rising into the truth. >> no. the 1.7 trillion in spending cuts already on the books does not include war savings. you're right to bring that up, but that's not in there. >> i didn't say it did. >> i thought you said it did. it does not include war savings. and there is absolutely nothing to worry about -- >> what does it include? >> let me finish. jimmy. >> no, it's larry. it's huggy -- >> the expiration of the top two tax cuts does not -- >> no, it's huggy kissy larry. >> thank you, larry. >> i'm trying to figure out where this trillion-dollar spending cut is coming from. because the wartime stuff has already been counted. the 1.2 trillion that was in this budget control act is off the table. they're ending sequestration. they're ending the automatic cuts. it's gone. it's history. so look. i hope boehner can pull a rabbit out of the hat and
of bill clinton. this is a question of you want your cia director to have good judgment. is that asking too much? and this was obviously a case of bad judgment. there's a -- i would hope, by the way -- >> and should it just be the cia director or should it be anybody? where do you draw the line? >> i don't know where you draw the line but especially the cia director. this might also be a good time for the country to think about the militarization of the cia. i'm not sure we should have military leaders leading the cia, people in the military. >> that's been a long debate. that's why they wanted him to retire, correct. >> the cia is going to become increasingly a paramilitary operation. we ought to talk about that because that's a momentous development. >> a few months ago the gallup poll indicated our military was the most trusted institution in american life, so this was a huge blow at a time when congress is as popular as a root canal to have another institution of government have failed so badly, so, you know, we respect his service to the country, his sense of duty but this was a fa
cain says he knows just the man to do it. mccain says former president bill clinton should get involved. when he was president, mr. clinton held negotiations at camp david between israel and the palestinian authority. here's what mccain had to say about it on cbs' "face the nation." >> try to find someone, even as high-ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton. to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together. >> all right. the latest recount in florida shows congressman allen west trailing his democratic challenger patrick murphy by nearly 2,000 votes. west, a tea party favorite, is trying to keep this seat representing florida's 18th congressional district. unofficial numbers posted on sunday evening on the florida secretary of state's website give murphy an edge, 166,257 to 164,353 for west. >>> all right. 2016 is a long way away, but florida senator marco rubio sure looked like a presidential candidate during a visit to iowa. rubio appeared saturday night at a big
. in the 1990s, there was a presidential endorsement as president bill clinton included a twinkie in the millennium time capsule. we've seen it put to the test for shelf life. now the twinkie needs someone to come to its rescue or we'll have to say goodbye to the twinkie for good. >> i once remember having a deep-fried twinkie at the minnesota state fair. that's a good memory. we have much more aned the next hour of "cnn saturday morning", which starts right now. >>> good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. glad you're with us. on the brink of war, as fighting escalates between israel and hamas, experts say there will likely be a lot more bloodshed before the violence stops. we are only 45 days away until the fiscal cliff deadline. could a deal get done before it's too late? we'll take a look at the likelihood of that happening or not. >>> and pets abandoned because of superstorm sandy. four-legged victims in need of help. i'll take you on a ride along with their new guardians. >>> despite calls around the world for restraint, the situation along the israeli-gaza board ser rder is
is a former economic advisor to president bill clinton, former advisor to the senate finance committee and a partner with monument policy group. gentlemen, good to see you. jonathan, let me start with you. is it really unrealistic to think that a far reaching fiscal grand bargain can actually be hammered out during this brief lame duck session with all the holidays, or is it more likely that an interim deal which postpones all elements of the fiscal cliff will be signed? >> i think it's possible because i think a lot of conversations have been happening over the last several months. one thing that has to be very, very clear for republicans is whenever they're talking about raising taxes, they're getting into some potentially very, very dangerous territory. the reason for that is simple, because whenever these budget deals happen, the tax increases always take place immediately, but the spending cuts are enacted over two years o'clock five years, ten years. five years from now, we'll have a different congress, different members of congress, they're not going to feel bound to whatever de
the obama administration, i would appoint bill clinton as a middle east peace envoy. he has credibility both on the israeli street and in the arab world with the camp david accord s and with the clinton global initiative. we, as americans, the united nations has to get involved. we have to send a message to both israel and palestine that there's absolutely no military violence solution to the israeli/palestinian conflict. it can only be a peaceful and political one. >>> today's talk back question, should [ male announcer ] with 160 more miles per tank, the distances aren't getting shorter. ♪ the trucks are going farther. the new 2013 ram 1500. ♪ with the best-in-class fuel economy. engineered to move heaven and earth. ♪ guts. glory. ram. . >>> now is your chance to talk back on one of the big stories of the day. the question for you this morning, should politicians have a mandatory retirement age? it was a simple question, if you're 27. or maybe those over 50 are way too sensitive. nbc's fresh face luke russert shouted out a question at nancy pelosi's presser and was soundly booed over
% to 39.6%, which it was during the bill clinton administration. will the democrats -- and you know the democrats in the house and the senate and the president go along with these serious cuts in spending in entitlements, for example, medicare, social security, medicaid, all those spending cuts that the democrats usually hate. >> first of all, i want to tell my friend, dana, i believe the democrats have a mandate. we don't have to sit around for the next two years and listen to the republicans whine and complain about tax cuts going up. president obama extended the bush tax cuts for two years. he's put forward a grand bargain. republicans reject that had. the democrats defeated 16 republican incumbents last week. i think the house democrats will be in a position to work with mr. boehner to try to get the votes. mr. boehner has never been able to deliver the votes without ms. pelosi and the democrats delivering those votes. i think the democratic position is to come up with a fair and balanced proposal to not raise taxes on the middle class and to not sit back and listen to the repub
. that is pretty evil. >> i don't think that happened under reagan or under bill clinton. marginal tax rate increase that democrats are looking for will do nothing more than help support the majority of middle class americans that not only support increases on, increase in tax rates on people who are earning over $250,000 but also support not cutting things like social security and medicare and medicaid. and so i think the democrats come in not feeling very, very, rather feeling very strong around this idea that they can create the right compromise and right balance to move this country forward. rick: terry, bill kristol, the prominent conservative, spent last couple days on this network talking about how republicans may want to go along with the president's plan to raise tax rates on those earners above 250,000. take a listen. i'll get your response. this is last night an "special report". >> the first takes rates expire on december 31st. rates are going up for everyone if nothing happens. if you think republicans can win a showdown preserving all the current tax rates against a president

: just a related note. jim saying president bush read -- raise taxes and bill clinton ran on the worst economy in 50 years. guest: to the last caller, i do not mean to disappoint you. i agree with what you are saying. we do not have a position that we should lower taxes on corporations. there are some democrats saying that. it seemed crazy to me. we desperately need the revenue to kickstart our economy. when you talk about the fact that our government has been captured by lobbyists and corporate interests, when i talk about -- talk to moveon members, that is the first thing they say. banks have absolutely capture the regulatory process. oil companies have a huge amount to say about what the energy regulations are. you can go right down the list. i totally agree that we have to change how campaigns are financed in this country and the revolving door that allows people to zoom right out of government into lobbying and back and forth. that door should be slammed shut. there are things we need to do to break the ties between corporations and big business and the government that should be s
